My self-summary
(and a note, my beard is a little bit fuller than the photos would suggest, seeing as they are a few months out of date...)
Peter Parker Seeks Gwen Stacy for amazing, spectacular adventures; inquire within.

If you still don't understand, then please watch the following youtube link and understand that I consider it one of the most adorable things I've ever seen...

Not terrified yet? Okay cool. Let's move on to about me. Because I don't think you are here looking at my profile to learn more about you. At least I hope not. Unless your into that whole introspective life experiences thing. Anyway...

Who am I?
Also deathly afraid of owls. Anything that regularly kills bats and travel in groups known as parliaments are scary.

I'm not the kind of geek who can only talk about geeky things, but being a geek is a deep part of who I am, and if you aren't interested in at least some part of geek culture, Movies, television, music, comics, ANYTHING that can be called geeky really, then I don't think we'll be compatible for dating. I've dated girls with zero geekdom in it and quite honestly it leads to having nothing to talk about and I really do love to talk.

I'm a writer, and as such I try to consume as many forms of entertainment as I can to analyze in my head. Television, movies, books, comics, video games, board games, theater. Storytelling is deeply involved in all of them and as such I'm also deeply involved in them.
I watch a ridiculous amount of TV and movies; Netflix is kind of a dream. I adore comics and read them frequently. Here's the thing about that though. I'm trying to find someone who is either interested in comics, reads comics, or is willing to try reading comics. I don't expect said woman to love them, but to at least hold an open mind about them is an expectation. If you believe comics are just for kids, move alone.

I don't feel any physical attraction to men(though I do appreciate the male form and often will comment on the particularly attractive ones), but that doesn't mean men and women attracted to their own gender deserve any less respect. And just because you weren't born here(or as who you are now) doesn't mean you are in any way less of a human being. I'm also a feminist, frequently finding the lack of women in the various media in anything but the standard stereotypical roles kind of revolting. I am an equalist or Humanist. I believe every single person deserves the same rights. Also super liberal(if that somehow wasn't clear).

I get along with all walks of life so we will likely, easily, be able to be friends. But when I'm looking for something more, like I am now, there are certain things I'm not looking for. Oh and if you've read this far, I suppose an explanation on the whole Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker portion might be in order.
To me, the one great love of Peter Parker's life was Gwen Stacy. There have been many other love interests but Gwen had the most impact on Peter's life. She was a character that was Peter's intellectual equal, and at the same time had her own interests and desires. She was more of a compliment to Peter than a mirror and so that kind of speaks to what I'm looking for. Someone who is an equal but a copy. Someone unique, awesome, and mind blowing.
And the fact that Gwen died is purely incidental and not at all related to what I'm looking for.

I guess I should also mention that I'm not, as the kids would say, all of my shit together. I mean, I'm moving the pieces into place so that by years end I'm completely solid, but medical events and life events have drained the coffers and left me in a place of climbing to stability. This isn't me looking for a handout or sympathy. I am, however, asking for some compassion to look past this and to know that I am actively attempting to fix the problems that have befallen me, rather than be content to misery. If that, somehow, isn't good enough for you then you definitely aren't what I'm looking for. If you are okay with those facts, then we should definitely talk. I'd rather be honest with you up front that this exists that wait until after we've invested time and effort into one another and discovered that it's a deal breaker for you.

"I have always felt that violence was the last refuge of the incompetent, and empty threats the final sanctuary of the terminally inept" - my favorite quote from Neil Gaiman
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get the most out of it. And write something worth a damn.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh by being fast witted and brainy. And when I actually push myself to do it, writing as well. I'm also good at being an interchangeable part, easily able to fit into many different social circles.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gigantic wealth of knowledge regarding pop culture.
Also the beard tends to get some attention...

Food: Steak and Potatoes. I suppose other food might be good... But I absolutely hate cake and most things with the word cake in them (but not pancakes, pancakes can stay).
UPDATE: I semi-recently found out that I have a defective gall bladder! What does that mean? It means I have to only eat low fat food, cut significantly down on the red meats, not eat whole milk products and avoid anything super greasy. In addition, almost a year ago I cut out Soda/Caffeine, and also Fast Food. Which makes my food choices pretty slim since I am a self described carnitarian.

But seriously, I'm a huge movie/comic/television fan so you can just ask and I'll likely have at least watched it.
Six things I could never do without
1. Comics.
2. Friends.
3. Cats.
4. Sleep.
5. Television.
6. Internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Future.
The Past.
Also I'm usually working on some story in my head. I can literally go years without writing something because I'm still trying to outline it in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Indoors, involved in some form of entertainment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Jokey Answer:
A Llama once tried to eat me. Also Owls terrify the shit out of me. Anything that regularly hunts and kills Bats is frightening.
You'd think animals have something against me. At least my cats like me...right?

Non-Jokey Answer:
The terrible tragedy in Connecticut on December 14th changed my world view. Lately guns make me sick to my stomach and I just want to do things to make this world better and to keep the kids still in it from dying.
You should message me if
You're geeky. You like Geeks. You understand that I own more Graphic Novels than you own movies. You're as awesome as I am. You are looking for something permanent. Or because you want to, because who am I to get in the way of what you want?
Bonus: You want to sit down and watch some awesome Noir movie or talk about something equally entertaining.

If you've even heard of Pushing Daisies we should talk, because those of us are few and far between...

The semi-recent massacre in CT has caused me to need to include this clause: If you are a fan of guns, violence, war, or in any way support ownership or use of any of them, please do not message me. I have had a serious change on how tolerant I am of such things, and the events of December 14th have changed me dramatically.

Also thanks for reading this whole thing if you did, I've spent a lot of time revising it, trying to figure out what I wanted to say, so I appreciate you taking the time to take a look. And if we don't get to talk, have a wonderful life.
The two of us
